Look what they did to a Mercedes 300SL Gullwing
Mercedes AMG has sullied one of its most cherished icons, dropping a 6.0 liter V8 into a camo-painted Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing designed for Bathing Ape Fashion founder NIGO.
The car was built because when you're a billionaire and you got nothing better to do with your money, then why wouldn't you get the oldest auto company in the world to *******ize one of its most sought-after classics? The completely camouflaged car has been equipped with completely upgraded mechanicals including a 6.0-liter V8 and we're assuming an automatic transmission.
Some things money shouldn't be able to buy, like self-respect. We could understand if an outside tuner shop created this abortion, but for Mercedes to have a hand in this is just so wrong on so many levels.

The gullwing has always been on top of the list "If I had a lot of money".
Also winner of "If I could only chose one car for the rest of my life".
Sad to see this happen to it.

This is disgusting! One of the most celebrated (and my most loved) design in automotive history, and this is what they do to it!!!!
Just goes to prove that money is nothing without good taste!

There is another retro silver similar 300sl gullwing built on an slk chasis by AMG with the same AMG wheels and door mirrors as this one. This one also seems to be just replica body on slk running gear so no real sl body was sacrifised.
